But what is the history of this Spanish classic? Here we tell you.

The history between the clubs is short because although the women’s football of the culé entity began to develop in 2002, the existence of the Real Madrid women’s team dates back only two years, when the club absorbed Club Deportivo Tacón.

October 4, 2020 was a historic day, that day was the first time that the women’s Spanish classic was played on a playing field for the Primera Iberdrola 2020/2021 season. It was nothing more and nothing less than the first date of the League, to open the tournament. That match was won by the azulgranas 4-0, imposing the weight of history on the pitch, with goals from Patri, Misa (against), Lieke Martens and Alexia Putellas.

The first time that Barcelona faced CD Tacón was on the first day of the League, season 2019/2020. That day the culé won by 9 to 1, as locals. In the second leg, in Madrid, on matchday 16 they won 6-0. Then came the first official classic where they won 4-0 and in that same 2020/2021 season, on matchday 18 they beat the merengues 4-0. one.

The last classic they played was for date 13 of the League last season, where the Barça team defeated Real 3-1, with two goals from Martens and one from Irene. The discount for the meringues was from Kosovare Asllani.

The next meeting between the clubs will be for the date 24 of the League, where Barcelona will play at home on March 13. That same month, but on the 30th the clubs will meet for the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinals and the match has already sold out all the available tickets that the Catalan club put on sale. 85 thousand people bought their tickets and the game set a new historical record for women’s soccer.
